Honesty + Courage + Vision + Compassion

Achieving and protecting your dreams.

Have you had an idea for a business or invention but no clue whether or how it could become a reality—or if you could make it the source of your livelihood? 

As a patent, trademark, and intellectual property attorney, I specialize in helping you find the right path forward so that your ideas are protected and your development goals ​are secure.

Black Dog's Mission

Protecting your ideas and dreams while providing you guidance and strength in the process.

Patent Application and Prosecution

Patent prosecution is the process of writing and filing a patent application and pursuing protection for the patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Intellectual Property Strategy and Registration

Intellectual property refers to tangible and intangible creations of the human mind. All of these creations can hold great value. Patents, trademarks, copyrights are all forms of intellectual property that can be registered. 

Diverse Industry Experience

Experienced in a range of technologies, including biological sciences, animal sciences, mechanical, agriculture and other high-value industries allows me to relate to a variety of inventors and business owners.

Trademark Application and  Prosecution

Trademarks protect your brand, business, and product. The name or phrase associated with your business makes you standout from the competition. Filing and registering a trademark and getting it approved through the state or federal office is trademark prosecution.

Contract Drafting and Review for Employers, Employees and Freelancers

If you are hiring someone or being hired, you are entering into a contractual relationship. Making sure the documents you are signing meet your needs and protect your rights is crucial to having a good relationship with the other party.

The Team

Why "Black Dog Law"? 

I do love animals and have two dogs and a cat, all of which are black in color. Black dogs and cats are adopted less frequently than other colors because of both superstitious reasons and that they are more aggressive. Black Dog Law came from my mission to legally protect ideas and also to provide people access to legal services that might seem unattainable.


The mission of my law practice is to help people protect their ideas and innovations. The idea of getting a patent or trademark can seem daunting and expensive. My goal is to make my legal services accessible and affordable.
